"Leah Eskin is the poet laureate of recipes." -- BBQ hotshot Craig "Meathead" Goldwyn

I write about food and other urgent matters.

My column, "Home on the Range," runs weekly in the Chicago Tribune and other news outlets. You can find links on the Column page of this site.

I also write features; I've posted a few favorites on the Stories page. I'll be learning to blog on Crumbs. If I ever finish Recipes, there'll be zillions. I'll make it searchable. Promise.

I teach writing and cooking and am the author of the memoir "Slices of Life: A Food Writer Cooks through Many a Conundrum" (details on the Book page). You can write me via the Contact page or send a photo via the In-box page. I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy cooking (or reading),
